Vicente Fox, former President of Mexico, is now represented by the Harry Walker agency, which represents Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Freakonomics author Steven Levitt, and a cast of thousands. Here's his bio.
Vicente Fox

President of Mexico, 2000-2006

A visionary leader with a deep understanding of the economic and social challenges facing Latin America, President Vicente Fox is one of the world’s most important voices on the contemporary geo-political landscape and the role of business in the developing world.

I could go on about how they give him too much credit for success in turning Mexico's economy around, but what really want to know is this—what's his immigration status? How come Fox, a failed ex-President of Mexico, is allowed to take jobs from native-born failed ex-presidents like Bill Clinton, or failed vice-presidents like Al Gore, who couldn't steal enough votes to become a failed President.

Soon George Bush will be a failed ex-President, represented by a speakers agency—how's he going to feel if he's looking for a speaking engagement and finds that a Mexican took his job?

But they say it helps to laugh, so if that happens to President Bush, I'll laugh really, really, hard.
